HAKAFA means "encirclement."
We are a congregation of people
who choose to have no building,
no board of directors,
and no fund-raising.
Our CIRCLE has been growing
for nearly 40 years.
But as we grow, our intimate,
caring, and welcoming
atmosphere remains.

Tips to Prepare for Reopening After COVID - Maine SBDC

The congregation voted at our annual meeting to accept the recommendation of our COVID-19 Task Force to begin face-to-face worship and programming as of June 1, while maintaining our online presence.  A special thank you to the members of the COVID-19 Task Force who have worked thoughtfully and diligently to get as back in-person as safely, sensibly, and reasonably as could be expected in such a dizzying time. The COVID-19 Task Force will continue to meet regularly to adjust the guidelines as science and best practices dictate. As you begin to leave your house more and more, we look forward to seeing you more and more in-person at our metaphorical one.
